Librivox recording of The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope.
Read by Andy Minter
The Prisoner of Zenda tells the story of Rudolf Rassendyll, an English gentleman on holiday in Ruritania, a country not a thousand miles from Bavaria. There, by reason of his resemblance to the King of Ruritania he becomes involved in saving the King’s Life and his Throne from the King’s dastardly brother and his allies. Woods, moated castles, pomp, swordplay, gallantry, villainy and a beautiful princess. What story could ask for more?

Another Gem by Andy Minter
I had never heard of this author, or book, and listened simply because I'm a fan of Andy Minter. What a fun story! Love, intrigue, duels and treachery. Andy does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life with his reading.

A classic adventure story
Wealthy and young Rudolph Rassendyll visits Ruritania looking for adventure and amusement and he is suddenly involved in action beyond his wildest dreams. Indeed Rassendyll is the image of the young king, whom Black Michael plans to destroy unless a daring deception can rescue him
Thank you very much, Mr Minter, for your delightful reading. Highly recommended!

Good book; great recording
I had never heard of this book until I found it on Librivox. It's a fun short novel full of adventure and humor. Anthony Hope delivers a deadpan British reading that perfectly suits the voice of the narrator.
